Birth of Galactus

Galan seemingly had a similar history as Earth-616 counterpart. Attempting to escape the destruction of his universe, Galan flew a spaceship into the Cosmic Egg. While the rest of his crew died, he absorbed the energies of the Egg and emerged as the cosmic being Galactus. As a result of his transformation, Galactus has to absorb planets' energies to survive.

Among the planets Galactus tried to devour was Zenn-La. One of the inhabitants, Norrin Radd, confronted him with a proposition: he spare Zenn-Lan in exchange for becoming his herald. Agreeing, he used the Power Cosmic turned Norrin into the Silver Surfer.

The Hunger

During a time of great starvation, Galactus was led to the planet Apokolips by his herald. Despite being extremely weak from the hunger, Galactus easily overcame Apokolips' defenses, including an assault from Darkseid himself. As Galactus prepared to consume the planet's energies, his technology revealed that Apokolips, despite the abundance of sentient humanoid life, had no life energy to consume, having been burnt out by Darkseid in his quest to feed his war machine as well as drive Apokolips’ inhabitants under his thumb. After a brief exchange with the tyrant over their parallel existences, Galactus – having no further business – and the Surfer departed.[1]
